Installing. This time, with a completely fresh install and profile. Hopefully, no random crashes like my old copy!

Could you include a change log so I know what to look for in particular? :)

There's a file "release notes.txt" that gets extracted in your Descent folder when installing D2X-XL.

Doh! I forgot to check the forums yesterday :wallbash:. I feel really bad because I am right now heading off for a class, but I'll test when I get back. Don't forget to folow procedure and the checklist, Sykes. Ignore the trigger and light testing levels for now.

Most important stuff to test is all physics and AI related things - also while in a menu or in the automap. Physics ticks should always advance properly there, too (@ 40 fps).

I will be going through

-Finish a level in D2:CS including a secret level. -=CLEARED=-
-Test automap. -=CLEARED=-
-Save/load a game. -=CLEARED=-

I will also go through anything else multiplayer-related when enough people gather in the chat room. I posted an announcement on Steam saying that a test was underway and to join the chat room to help out. I'll see how well that works.

I already found some minor issues though. The instructions were kind of hard to understand. Do I make a report on SF.net AND make a thread about each bug? Or do I reply to this thread about each bug I find? Or do I only post in this forum about bugs that are severe?

EDIT: Removed the trigger level test from list. Removed "Change every setting" as that will take a while. If I finish, I will post the results.

We don't have a trigger testing level yet, you can skip that one.

Make a bug report on SF.net. If the bug is major (gameplay ruining), post the bug here also. If others encounter this (major) bug, the test is a fail.

So what if I find a bug but I can't figure out how to reproduce it correctly, therefore preventing me from reporting it. Do I ask about it here and see if someone can help me figure it out?

Also, I edited my above post showing what I have completed.

Right before I submitted the report, something in my head clicked and I think I might have found out what causes the bug. I'll delay the report until I figure it out.
